Workers who receive Social Security disability (SSD) benefits usually understand that these much-needed government payments only last for a limited time. Under certain circumstances, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will no longer provide these benefits.
In 2020, nearly 893,000 disabled workers had their SSD benefits terminated. That amount represents the most ever recorded since such statistics began in 1960. The number represents a 2.5% increase from the nearly 871,000 workers terminated for benefits in 2019. Roughly 70% of this group lost their benefits because they either reached full-retirement age or no longer met medical requirements.
The primary reasons why disabled workers had their SSD benefits terminated in 2020 were:
You will receive SSD benefits if your medical ailment prevents you from working at least a year. These are much-needed benefits to help you but understand that they are not permanent.
The challenges you face as a disabled worker are many. You want to work but cannot and that is why you receive SSD benefits. But you no longer will need them if your health improves enough that you may get back to work or once you reach full-retirement age.
